Will you please stop propagating this nonsense that
maildir is non
standard. Its a reliable standard that has been in use for getting on
for 40 years, it long pre-dates Linux, long pre-dates UNIX on PCS. It
history goes back to the MH messaging system and was based on the idea
that the shell/text tools make more sense when email is in a
one-message-per-file format. If that 'stinks' of CLI-ness, then yes,
and it tells you how old this is.
Point of order: maildir is less than 19-years old. It was
invented by Dan Bernstein for use in his qmail MTA, which started
in Dec 1995, as per a quick google search.
Regarding usability, I prefer mbox because of its reliability
and ease of access with standard text tools. Locking hasn't
been an issue for me, as long as I don't mount via NFS.
